ARTISTS
Aura Farwell
Hi! My name is Aura Farwell and I have been a Colorado resident for all of my life. I grew up in Buena Vista, CO and am a proud Mountain Mama! I love to explore all things Colorado, but I am happy to travel as far and wide as I can, too. Discovering new cultures, communities and places is a source of fulfillment for me. I'm all about new experiences and adventure makes my heart sing!
I am a very creative person and try to get my hands on anything artistic, from drawing and painting to writing, crafting and photography. I am a photographer by trade and I love to capture the human essence. I love to photograph, draw and paint people and to discover the depths of each individual through their eyes. Since people fascinate me so much, human connection is important to me and I look forward to meeting new people every day.

Aura Farwell is available for private bookings

I am available most Saturdays/Sundays and Mondays from 11am-9pm.
I am available for private tutoring for drawing classes, mostly in portraits and the human form.
I am available for photography of weddings, events, portraits, graduations, etc.

Title or Location: Rams in the Garden
A friend of mine was hiking near Garden of the Gods and captured a great photo of these two rams. The rams looked as though they were posing in a natural field of grasses and I loved the monochrome hue. She graciously allowed me to use her photo as a reference for this study in oil. This is an 11 x 14 on a canvas panel in oil.

I?ve only been painting for the last five years. I stumbled onto a few Bigfoot groups early on and found an unexpected following. Since then I?ve sold almost 500 paintings, done cover art for 10 books, illustrated 2 children?s books , done illustrations for a number of podcast and done over 60 sketches for people who have had up-close eye witnesses sightings. I?ll do about 3 Bigfoot conferences / shows annually. This particular painting was inspired after visiting Caddo Lake near Jefferson Te

After several attempts at deconstructing the real flower, they die overnight, I was able to recreate her beauty out of several different grams of crepe paper. By painting and adding the details. Success. Natures beauty is such an inspiration.
